Paris-Sorbonne University recently accepted Khumo Mampuru – a mechanical engineering graduate – into its master’s in quantitative economics course.

The university is offering Mampuru a 50% scholarship, but he still needs about €12 000 to finance his first year.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Mampuru about the opportunity he has, and what he needs to realise his dream.
